The Rash of Rubella in Adults Pictures - 12 Photos & Images

When a person becomes infected with the rubella virus, the virus begins to multiply within the cells that line the back of the throat and nose. After 14 to 21 days, early rubella symptoms can appear. This period between the transmission of rubella and the start of symptoms is called the "rubella incubation period." About one half of people infected with the rubella virus don't develop symptoms.

Rubella symptoms that are the same in both adults and children include:
Mild fever
Swollen lymph glands behind the ears and/or neck.

In adults, other early symptoms may occur one to seven days before the rubella rash appears. These include:
Muscle and body aches
Red, watery eyes (pink eye).

In children, the rubella rash may be the first symptom. These early symptoms usually last three to four days -- although it can be as short as one day and as long as eight days before the rubella rash appears.
